Dollar General Gift Card Giveaway

Unfortunately, Summer is about to come to a screeching halt.

Isn’t that how it always happens – out of nowhere?  Now we’re all scrambling to buy everything on school supply lists and get the kids ready.  We can’t lose sight of our wallets, though!

Rather than falling prey to the common excuse “I don’t have time to save money,” focus on easier ways to save when things get crazy.   You can start with this Suave offer: save $2 instantly when you buy $6 worth of participating Suave products.  You don’t even need any coupons!  Just grab the items and you’ll get the savings at the register.

If you want some coupons though… play the new Dollar General game, The Savings Search.  It’s a back to school themed photo hunt game, for a chance to earn even more savings!  Finish the game to also save $1 on any Suave Professionals Shampoo or Conditioner (28oz), Suave Natural Infusions (12.6 oz), or any Suave Hand & Body Lotion (excluding trial and travel).  I played the game and I’m going to warn you:  the third thing is always the hardest to find.  It’s a timed “find the differences” game that you will probably find slightly addictive.

The Giveaway:

1 Southern Savers reader is going to win a $50 Dollar General Gift card!

To Enter:

Leave a comment below telling me how you save money in the back to school season.

This giveaway is sponsored by lunchbox, but all opinions are 100% my own.

New August Printable Coupons!

Printable Coupons
It’s the first of the month and that means tons of NEW PRINTABLE COUPONS!  Remember some coupons will not last long.  I have a few rules to help me decide what to print and what to wait on (printing coupons does have a cost for paper and ink so please don’t print them all).

What to print (my rules):

1.  Any coupon for a brand or product I know we will use in the next month.
2.  Vegetable or meat coupons.
3.  High value coupons that are bound to make a deal.

If a coupon doesn’t fit one of those rules, then leave it there and if you do end up wanting it hopefully you can print it later.

bird watching date

This Frugal Date Friday is for the birds! We are going to go bird watching.

Now, if you have never done this before, it may seem lame or borning. Once you do it though, you’ll see how much fun it is. Birds are amazing creatures.

A quote from my husband, “It is quite an experience to hear birdsong and then pull the binoculars to your eyes. You will witness a magnificent creature as if he were right there.”

So yeah, grab some binoculars and head outside.  Want the full experience? Take along a bird book guide (this is also a fun tool for homeschooling). For a free option, you can download the free Merlin Bird ID App.

Tips for Bird Watching:

Take a pair of binoculars for each person
Research the best places for bird watching beforehand
Listen for calls and song

If you live in South Carolina, here are some top places to go bird watching.
